Advanced Manufacturing Program (AMP) Grant

AMP Up Manufacturing!

Advanced Manufacturing Program (AMP) Grant is a competitive grant program.

The AMP Grant is awarded annually to selected manufacturers to encourage new advanced manufacturing projects and services.

The AMP Grant helps Ohio manufacturers to enter markets sooner, respond faster to customer needs, create higher quality products, and improve efficiencies, quantities and reliability.

Most projects are awarded $250,000 – $500,000.

The result of the 2015 AMP Grant is a beverage koozie.  The koozie was produced by Bastech using the conformal cooling unit pictured which was made using an injection molded core produced by direct metal printing.  The core contains a reverse flow double helix cross section that chills during the process which greatly reduces the cooling time.  This geometry cannot be made using traditional subtractive machining methods.
